I can’t believe it is November 30, and the end of NaBloPoMo – although in my mind, I kept thinking it was NaNoBloPoMo – National November Blog Posting Month. I am proud of myself that I did sign up in the first place and with a combination of the provided prompts and those from the FMS Photo A Day challenge, I was able to complete the month! (Except I realize that I forgot to list the daily posts on the log.)
Things that occurred to me today:
- Whoo hoo! I did it. A good sense of accomplishment.
- It has been good to start writing again
- I have also really enjoyed the FMS Photo a day challenges more because of the opportunity to provide more of a narrative
- I do need to push myself to write more – still looking for my voice.
- I am going to sign up for December!
I appreciate anyone who has dropped by to have a peek and also discovered some new blogs to follow.

I was the child of a mother of an era that believed young girls should not wear black. And for a long while since she did pay for my wardrobe for a time, I did not have any black clothing save for a a pair of jeans, and a likely a pair of dress pants and skirt. It was fine as a trade off as I pretty much refused to wear pink until more recent times.
While this is a photo prompt, likely due to the fact that it is “Black Friday” in the USA, and now north of the border and across the oceans now.
A friend of mine nominated me to participate in a Black and White photo challenge. Each day, I was to post a photo in black and white, and nominate a different person to participate each day for 5 days in a row.
I grew up seeing a few family albums in black and white, and I am sure, like many, re-discovered them when I saw Ansel Adams photographic prints. I love colour and usually post my photos in full on and sometimes highlight the colour so it was a challenge to find photos that I had taken that would show as well, and in some cases perhaps even better, in black and white.
